Rating: PG for some rude humor and language What it's about: A boy narrates his comically nightmarish misadventures from his first year in middle school. The kid attractor factor: The bestselling books come to life, or at least the big screen. Good lessons/bad lessons: "It's our choices that make us who we are." Violence: Bullies threaten it. Language: Trips to the toilet using the milder words one uses there Sex: Boys stumble toward that age when they notice girls. Drugs: None. Parents' advisory: Funny, irreverent, pretty faithful to the tween-centered books, this is very family friendly, potty breaks notwithstanding.
